If it’s been a while since your living room has seen an update, maybe it’s time for a full-room decoration. But where to start? Hey, relax. A room makeover isn’t something only an expensive interior designer can achieve. We can show you how to update your living room style with a fresh, new look in just a few steps.
Before you begin your transformation, there are some things to think about. Consider your goals. How much of a re-do are you hoping for? Are you looking for a complete overhaul, as the photos at the top and bottom of this page? Or are you after a more modest update? Once that’s decided, it’s time to take a look at your budget. Are you ready to go all out, or just looking to refresh for the season? Whatever your goals and budget, you’re prepared now so it’s time to have some fun.
Choosing a central theme is a great place to start. Find a theme, or a statement piece, for your living room style. This could be a fabulous piece of furniture, like a new sofa or accent chair. Or you could design your living room style around an exciting piece of wall art, or even a rug with a modern flair. Read Stylish Rug post to learn more about choosing the perfect rug!
Then, start adding in new pieces. For a complete overhaul, empty everything out of the room except for your statement piece. Gradually, bring in other items to complement, or tastefully contrast, your main selection. In the top and bottom pics, note how two distinct looks can be achieved by using the charcoal gray Hadley sofa as a central theme. If a new piece of furniture isn’t in the budget, smaller items can have a beautiful impact.
Make the room yours by using decor to manifest your personality. Everything you add helps express your individuality. Use accent tables and decorative accents like figurines, lamps and throw pillows to give your room pizzazz. On the wall, picture frames and mirrors can be used to fill spaces and complement your design. This is the chance to showcase your unique tastes, so don’t be afraid to fill up space with pieces. Sometimes the more you add, the cozier a room feels.
Now, it’s time to do your own project. Be sure to tag us at #wohomen with your living room decoration!
